Make sure to install a brand new needle. If that doesn't help, then it's possible the machine has been slightly knocked out of time. Take it for service.

Check the specifications on your sewing machine. Most machines have not yet been upgraded to use Windows 10.

Check with the dealer. Some machines aren't Windows 10 compatible.

Do you mean the symbol above the scissors on the infodisplay? If that is the blinking indicator, then the top thread has broken or the spool is empty. If the top thread continues to break, then the problem could be the age of the thread or the thread catching on a spot on the spool. (Thread degrades under most light. So the time it was on display at the store or sitting in your sewing area can be a factor.) Check the spool for rough spots. Make sure that the top thread is threaded correctly. Try a new needle; sometimes the eye of the needle can have sharp burs or edges. Check the top thread tension. Look at the hole in the stitch plate; if it is chipped or damaged, replace it. A damaged stitch plate can also cause breakage of the bobbin thread.

Husqvarna Viking has the manual for the Rose 600 on the machine support page: . The direct link to the manual is . See page 10 a picture of the top thread icon. See page 56 for the trouble-shooting guide. A stand-alone trouble-shooting guide here is also available: . Husqvarna Viking uses same manual for the 600 and the 605.

I hope this helps.

Very possible the machine has seized. They tend to do that when stored with no activity. Take it for service.

The standard setting when the machine leaves the factory is the midway point between high & low number. However, over time with use, that setting may shift. The ideal tension setting for your machine is when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

I haven't seen a free copy of a service manual, but have seen free copies of operating manuals. I assume from your question that you do not want the operating manual, and want a free service manual.

For ~$30, you can buy a standalone bobbin winder (Sidewinder) from Amazon, JoAnn's etc.

Hello Kitty
The 'tiny black semi-circle' sounds like the bobbin winder or a part of it. That 'little' part has to go back onto the bobbin winder, or else the bobbins will over-fill. However, if the bobbin winder (the 'thing' that holds the bobbin in place while winding) is pushed toward the bobbin spindle ... pull it back and the machine will 'let' you sew. But still no winding bobbins. Refer to pages 10 and 11 of your manual, or download it for free from:
The part that came off, should be installed to factory specifications which a qualified technician will be able to instal.
Hopefully this will let you finish what you started.

Please give me a thumbs up if this is helpful.

Sorry, I could not find specifics for your particular machine. However, in the comment section below this video, the statement is made that if the button is too large, then the old fashioned way of making buttonholes would need to be used:

Hello Fran
To set stitch length and width:
1. Select the stitch in "Stitch Men"
2. Set the preferred stitch length and width in "Sewing Information Menu"
Both of these are shown on page 4:2 in the User's Guide which can also be downloaded for free from:

To guide the fabric so the stitching is consistently at the same distance from the edge, use the markings on the throat plate .... the metal plate around the clear bobbin cover. Alternatively there a number of accessory feet which guide the fabric for that perfect stitching. You may want to refer to the Accessory User's Guide found at
Have a look at such feet as:
- clear seam guide foot
- edge stitching foot
- edge / guiding foot
These are the most often used, although there are others, depending on the need and application.

Please give me a thumbs up if this was helpful. Otherwise please do send me more info on your specific challenge.

Happy stitching

try increasing the needle thread tension up a bit more
the tension numbers in the book are only a rough guide to tension settings

Very possible the needle is old, damaged, or the incorrect type for the fabric. Sometimes a straight-stitch needle plate can be used on a machine that will prevent the fabric from going down through the hole. But try a new needle first. Make sure you are using the correct type of needle for the fabric you are sewing--sharp for woven fabric, ball point for knit.
